The United Republic of East Klent is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by President Cash Willows with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and smutty television. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 20.571 billion Klentians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Williamsburg DK. The average income tax rate is 88.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Klentian economy, worth a remarkable 4,706 trillion Klentoes a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 228,817 Klentoes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

In life full of care there is no time to stop and stare, dentists routinely perform open heart surgery, cotton candy made from genuine cotton cellulose doesn't quite satisfy, and homophobia is off the menu. Crime is totally unknown. East Klent's national animal is the Qua Tiger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is None.

East Klent is ranked 857th in the world and 2nd in The Heartland for Most Cultured, scoring 326 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
